Spicy Sausage Spaghetti Recipe

Publisher Photo
Served with crusty bread and a green salad, this is a good summer supper. It has lots of heat (my husband likes that) and it's colorful on the plate besides. -Nancy Rollag, Kewaskum, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 30, 2013

"This recipe was really, really good; However, I felt there was not enough spaghetti sauce. Next time I will leave out the plum tomatoes, add a can of diced tomatoes, spaghetti sauce, and tomato paste. I will be making this dish again! It was really pretty to look at, and the flavors incorporated very well together."

"This recipe deserves a 1000 stars. It is now my all time favorite spaghetti recipe. I've been making this since it out, and it never fails. This is a restaurant quality dish."

"chirawan, the "tomato sauce" directions are in the second paragraph. The sauce is made from the chilie-permeated oil, 28 oz.-can of plum tomatoes, seasonings, peppers and sausage. The directions in the third paragraph say to add this sauce (not canned tomato sauce)."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 9, 2009

"Your ingredients need to include tomato sauce! Your instructions say to "add tomato sauce" but I didn't have any since it wasn't in the ingredients!"
